Mohamed Salah has gifted Liverpool an early boost as they prepare to welcome the runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City to Anfield this Sunday.
With Philippe Coutinho sealing his £142million move to Barcelona, all eyes have since swiftly diverted towards Salah as the Reds’ key attacking talisman.
The Egyptian was absent for the recent wins against Burnley and Everton, with a groin problem serving as a minor disruption to his prolific goal-scoring streak
City are confronted with the task of stopping a man who, given his form, will deem a goal to be long overdue following two missed weeks.
Speaking in his press conference on Friday, Jurgen Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com: “If nothing happens in this moment, Mo is back, he is training completely normally.”
Salah threatens to be in a revengeful mood on Sunday as he looks to torment City after September’s 5-0 thrashing at the Etihad.
Liverpool’s summer-signing teased signs of being a menace during the corresponding fixture earlier this season, only to see his team’s momentum capitulate following Sadio Mane’s sending-off.
Neither Nicolas Otamendi nor John Stones had a convincing answer to Salah’s directness and explosive movement in behind, with Klopp having since been confident of side’s ability to cause City problems despite the damning scoreline.
The Reds mark the next serious test of Pep Guardiola’s men and, in particular, their defensive capabilities.
Whilst Salah is expected to return, Liverpool could again be without Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge as all three continue their recovery from injuries that have seen them sidelined since the early weeks in December.
